I have had my own custom automation in my house for awhile now using a combination of RaspberryPi, python scripts, and a custom developed web app and android app I built myself. It was initially for fun, so to speak, and works very well, but I am of course limited to the devices that I can integrate.
I want to really step it up and start getting something solid and very flexible (OpenHAB, RPi, Arduino, MQTT, etc. etc.) There is a lot of info out there and it can be overwhelming at times.
Anyway, in researching the best next step forward, I came across the Wink Hub and its “potential” rooting capability that would allow direct local interaction with aprontest. Essentially, it would really act more like a bridge with bindings to the OpenHAB server. I like the Wink because of all the various radios and device capability. So, I bought one. I haven’t opened it yet, but have been researching and one thing I apparently failed to realize is that a lot of the rooted Wink information out there is at least a year or more old. No real talk about it much since then.
I realize that the days of being able to exploit using php are long gone, but I have seen references to a hardware hack (grounding out the chip at a very specific time in a boot sequence) state that this will work with any firmware out there. The most recent affirmation I have seen of this is only a couple of months old.
However, I am curious if anyone has recently rooted a newer Wink Hub successfully?
